Quote from: galacticprobe on Mar 06, 2017, 06:00 amUsing a jigsaw would be problematic. Even a circular saw would be problematic. Both of those have no way of ensuring a straight cut, or a constant angle. You'd need a table saw like Steve used (see his Build Diary linked above) with a blade that you could set the angle on
